Care, Custody & Control
Also referred to as Custodial Liability, this section provides cover should a horse, in your care, sustain an injury or die as a result of your negligence.
Benefits are paid for veterinary fees or, in the event of the horse’s death, the current market value of the horse, up to the incident limit of £10,000 per horse, £100,000 during the policy period and an excess of £500 for each and every loss.
We can offer specific extensions to cover depending on your individual requirements, for example, extend your Public Liability cover to include riding other peoples horses at shows. We are also able to include Employers Liability on our Instructors insurance, should you have any employees. Further to this, we are happy to approach our underwriters about any non-standard extensions to cover that you may need.
You are required by law, under the Employers Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969, to hold a current Employers Liability policy for anyone employed by you, whether they are full time, part time, in training, paid or unpaid. It provides cover for any personal injury claims made against you by an employee during the course of their employment.
The policy provides cover up to £10,000,000.
Employers Liability cannot be taken out in isolation, only in conjunction with Public Liability.
